Two-way Doppler experiments based on electromagnetic waves (EMW) and intrinsic frequency measurements require one clock only and there is no need for ?synchronization?. Thus it should be possible in principle to determine motion wrt a hypothetical ether at rest as reference system. A 25 GHz radar source with a linear drive in front are mounted on a table, the latter designed to give a reflector a constant or periodic transversal motion, e.g. at some radial 20 m/s (reflector in linear, streaming, rotating or vibrating motion). Earth's travel towards Leo at 368 km/s should effect a difference of 5 mHz between the 3 kHz beat frequency towards Leo and perpendicular, respectively.
